Hi I'm Gordon

I grew up in Idaho Falls but have lived in Arizona for 40 years. I worked for Motorola as an electronics engineer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father and grandfather. I have 8 children and 16 grandchildren. I build and fly radio controlled airplanes. I love fly fishing when I get a chance. I worked for Motorola for 35 years as an electronics engineer and program manager. I am retired now.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 18 I took a religion class on the Book of Mormon. Like the Bible it is a collection of the writings of ancient prophets only these prophets lived on the American continent. On page 529 of that book the last Prophet that wrote in it, Moroni promised that anyone who reads the book and asks God with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ. He will manifest the truth of it unto you by the power of the Holy Ghost. I found that promise to be absolutely true. I know by the sweet whisperings of the Holy Ghost that the book is true. It has been an anchor to my soul and has helped me to have faith in Jesus Christ and live a better life than I ever would have without it for the past 50 years.

How I live my faith

My wife and I serve as workers in the Temple where members of the Church can come and have their families sealed to them for time and all eternity with that same sealing power that Christ gave to Peter. I also serve as Executive Secretary to the Bishop in our local congregation.
